Haha you think you will be getting it for 2k but there will be many more things to refurbish/replace. I bet a bad VC, all control arm bushings, motor mounts, trans mount, shocks, ect. They start to pile up. It's still not a bad deal at all though if it runs and shifts well. First thing I would do wold be to add a big transmission cooler to it.
Mine was in great shape with no rust and had ten years of records. I still replaced
plenum pan and gasket
tie rod ends
radiator blew later
rear carrier bearings
rear outer wheel bearings
rebuilt track lok
all control arm bushings
sway bar bushings
viscous coupler in transfer case
valve cover gaskets(still needs oil pan gasket)
Fuel pressure regulator
trans governor pressure sensor/ solenoid
Alternator went out later
Those were just old worn out original parts that needed replacing. Realistically that's what you will be looking at if none of those things have been addressed with a ZJ this age. Mine had 127k on it when I bought it.
